    I can just barely scrape an A, and I really want an A*. The IGCSE feb/march series are coming up in merely ten days and I'm trying to memorize whatever I can from the textbook. Is there anything else you would advise( besides understanding the concept as I already do) to make getting an A* more likely. Please, I'm really scared.

    Have you gone through past papers and looked at the mark scheme and examiner's reports? Knowing how to answer the questions (as per the mark scheme), remembering terminology and understanding the concepts should be enough. Good luck!

    Gosh the IGCSE's are tough especially for Biology where 30% of AS and A2 level content was added to the syllabus. Just don't worry; there many people in your situation right now. Just make sure you revise well for it in these ten days. Also pay particular care into the theory paper - pay attention to the question and add the correct details.
